you might suggest that he actually TALK to his child about her desired direction in life and express any concerns he may have directly to his virtually-adult DD.
Except that DD has gone NC on his sorry ass! She gives crickets any of the rare times he tries to contact her.
She will be 18 in three months, but that escapes him as well.
He did the same with DS when DS wanted to enlist at 17, TWO months before he both graduated and turned 18. We got in a big argument back then as well.
I think it is part of his control freak issues, and he HATES not having ultimate control. Nah, he's just a simple idiot...
